Much Warmer Weekend

Yesterday's front resides along the NC coast today with high pressure moving in from the north. The set up is for a rather nice stretch of weather through the weekend. A warming southwest wind kicks in Saturday bringing a return to more usual summer fare in the temperature department. A second front starts knocking on the door Sunday with isolated thunderstorms back in play late Sunday afternoon and evening. The front kicks on through Monday with widely scattered daytime showers and storms. There are a lot of hit and misses during those two days and chances are many folks don't see too much rain. Cooler air arrives thereafter, not bad!

By far, the most frequent question I have received in the last two years is: "When is RaysWeather going to get a mobile app?" The answer is "THIS WEEK!" for Android (probably "NEXT WEEK" for iPhone).
It costs about the same as a plain coffee at a coffee shop, but for years to come, it will be your "Go To" weather source when you are "On the Go" in the Southern Appalachians. Current conditions, Forecasts, Webcams, Radars, and the Photo of the Day--it's all in there from Grayson County VA to Waynesville and Henderson NC and everything in between.

Forecast Discussion

It has been a week in the making, finally an atmospheric cleansing as yesterday's cool front has stalled far enough away (NC coast back to Louisiana) for us to dry out for a couple of days. The exception to the rule is this afternoon, most everyone stays dry, but enough low level moisture hangs on for isolated showers to develop along the Blue Ridge escarpment.

A warming southwest wind takes over Saturday and the stalled front rockets north as a warm front. The surge of warmer air is not overly impressive, but it makes for the warmest couple of days we've seen in almost two weeks.

Isolated showers and storms enter the picture late Sunday with the combination of an approaching cold front and waves of energy moving southeast from the Ohio Valley. Stronger storms and heavier rain straddle the mountains just to our west and further north into the Virginia's. Monday's front passes without too much fanfare in terms of showers and storms, widely scattered coverage.

Beyond Monday's frontal passage we receive another significant cool down for the third time this month. The middle of the week looks exceptionally nice...but there is payback. By Thursday we transition to a wedgy cool, damp, and gray period that continues into the weekend.
